PRAY: Pray for the Afghan families as they come that they would be surrounded by churches and volunteers that would build just and welcoming communities. Pray for World Relief North Texas and our volunteers as we provide vital services for the new families with low staff and lots of families coming each week. Pray as World Relief North Texas engages the church and volunteers in bringing people together.
